    This lesson was made in version X6 , but can easily be made in previous versions. Mail me if you encounter difficulties.
    In earlier versions, merging down layers with different blend mode and/or opacity, can result in a slightly different effect

    In PSP versionX4 and higher there is no longer an option for Image/flip and/or Image/mirror giving the same result as it did in earlier versions.
    Please install my script to obtain the same result
